What Sundance Film Festival Is Really Like
Sundance Film Festival marks the time to see and be seen in Park City, as A-listers and influencers make their annual pilgrimage to the snow-filled city for a week full of cinematic greatness. Taking us behind the scenes this go-around is blogger Sophie Elkus, who spent time in the idyllic town hopping from events to screenings to the slopes. Here, she shares highlights from her trip for an inside look at the big-ticket event.
"So excited to arrive at Sundance! My daily essentials consisted of festival credentials, cashmere gloves and Karen Walker sunnies."
"A beautiful day at Sundance HQ on Main Street. During the rest of the year, Main Street is a quaint and quiet little area. But come festival time, there are tons of pop-ups and stages designed, installed and painted just for the big event."
"The trolley at Main Street is my favorite part of this shot—a little historic touch to a town otherwise transformed for Sundance."
"Marianna Hewitt and I attended the premiere of the Michael Jackson documentary, director Spike Lee’s masterpiece covering the early years of MJ’s career. I loved the never-before-seen footage of his concerts and teenage interviews. The film portrayed him well; as an energetic, hardworking, extremely talented yet complicated legend."
"Another one of my favorite cold-weather outfits: I love this white fringe jacket, L’Agence jeans and Stuart Weitzman boots."
"I stopped by the US Weekly x BeGlammed Lounge on Main Street and caught a glimpse of AnnaLynne McCord’s on-camera interview."
"Moments before the doors opened at the TAO pop-up on Main Street, which is the biggest party of the weekend. Vox Productions had just finished setting up the red carpet, lights and stages."
"Ran into Jacey Duprie inside Veuve Clicquot's incredibly chic yurt. The interior was designed by Gorsuch, and Veuve supplied the bubbly. We stayed for a 3-course champagne-pairing dinner and received a lesson on champagne from Veuve—it was such a memorable night."
